"We Can Do It!" (again soon?)
Update for 2021 Symposium 11-18-20
Your WBS producers, Claudia and Ann, want to produce the WBS again when we can have an in-person event. Having attended other virtual conferences this year, we don't think the spirit and purpose of our event would be served online.
The Small Business Development Center is hosted by Idaho State University, and therefore we comply with ISU pandemic policies. Right now, ISU is restricting non-class meetings for groups of 10 or more. if you are curious about ISU's policies you can see them here: https://www.isu.edu/media/top-level/coronavirus/Operational-Levels-Hybrid.pdf
We sincerely hope the restrictions change, but right now we are unsure what policies will be in place in the spring. Based on the projections about the pandemic and vaccines, we are not optimistic about producing the conference this spring. However, we won't make a final decision about producing the conference in April, 2021 until the end of January, 2021.
All of us have had many COVID disappointments. This is one of our biggest, and we sincerely thank you for your patience.
The SBDC is still operating if you want assistance on any business issue. We are always glad to help: email@example.com.
